Working From Home

Ever since Jonathan started his new job it has allowed me to work at home building web pages. I have been a little lonely at home by myself but It has been extremely fun! I get to plan my whole day! I have a little reading and tea break when I choose. I get to have time to cook for Jonathan when he comes home from work!
Here's some pictures of my tea break! I enjoyed finishing my book by Helen MacINNes. It was very excellent!

I have been enjoying the LINDT chocolate lately! I love the dark with the intense orange!

I have been shopping at the Goodwill and Savers recently for used candles! Some of them have smelled so good and I only paid $0.50 cents for!! Now I can never go back to buying new candles at the store for so much!!

Corrie Ten Boom

I loved reading The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom a couple of years ago! It was very sad and very, very sweet! I found a video of her being interviewed! I envy you if you haven't read the book yet!!  
This interview is so interesting! I love how much wisdom Corrie has! The interviewer is a little strange, so be warned! Perhaps she is just too old school for me. But don't let her ruin your chance to here Corrie Ten Boom tell her amazing story! I will post video # 2 a little later!

Armoire Hunting

I have been on a quest for Armoires. I have been wanting one for our bedroom for awhile. Not that we can even handle it up the 2 stories of stairs in our condo. I have also been looking on Craigslist and there have been a few I have liked. 

We are going to sell our bedroom set and start looking for new furniture on Craigslist! I hope we can find pieces like these above!

Date Night!

Monsoon Season is here! The storm blew in today late afternoon! It was amazing! John didn't get home from work until 7:30 so we decided to celebrate the rain and go to chinese! I told him I would buy since I was loaded :)
He liked that!! We enjoyed our dinner in a cozy mom and pop chinese restaurant where we had a nice window booth so we could watch the rain! The taste of Jasmine tea and Mongolian Beef was just beautiful! It was a very cozy night! After the storm passed we took a walk in a neighborhood nearby where I had once lived, The neighborhood had a beautiful golf course and lake! We could still see the lightning light up the whole sky!! 

These of course are just pictures that I took from the internet! We had such a cozy night together! Something we will have to make a tradition of when it rains again!

Semi Home Made

I know, Another cake!!! This cake I did not bake! I just bought it from the dollar store for a buck! I had one at Himilce's and it was very tasty. I melted some chocolate chips and cream in a bowl over a pot of boiling water. I then poured it over my pound cake.

We had a very cozy night because it was raining out and the house was clean!!! The dessert was quick, sweet and simple!

Movie Night With Bear Grylls

Jonathan and I watched Man Vs. Wild last night for our Movie Night! We love Bear Grylls! He is so crazy!! The stunts that he risks. I love all the traveling he does! My favorite is his Alaska trip! My second is when he goes to Scotland. My brother introduced us to him on Youtube and now we are ordering  Man Vs. Wild from Netflix since we don't get cable. We love his English accent and all his expressions! The video above are all his survival stunts to show you what to do if you happen to find yourself in a bad situation.

Cake Decorating!

Sunday I had the creativity itch. I have been wanting to buy a little  small round cake pan but haven't been able to afford it lately. So I started looking through my cupboards trying to find something circular and small that can bake a cake! I found one of my round glass Tupperware dishes that worked beautifully!!! 

My creativity can only go so far I'm afraid using the internet and watching videos. I need some help. My cake decorating  is beautiful for a little girl of 5 maybe!! I definitely want to start taking classes at Michael's!!
Now that John is working a great Job, we can hopefully afford it!!!
